Looks great IMHO, although not a style of bike that I can see me buying (too "lifestyle" for me).

Neither really to my taste but the older one looks honest at least.

That's just wrong (the modern one). It bears no relationship to a real Brough apart from the name on the tank.

They do seem to be selling well however. Marketing over engineering......

I think the Brough is about the ugliest "retro" motorcycle I've ever seen.    Look at the tank and seat,flat enough to do your ironing on.

Is it me or is it a bit of a cheap trick when manufacturers use the name of one of their company's original successful creations on their latest products. I don't like the look of that "Brough" in any case but especially having lusted after an original for decades. I didn't mind the new "Bonneville" as a bike, it's bound to be more reliable but it could never hope to replace it's namesake. Similarly with MG and the new V7 Special, I know they're struggling but I'm sure it doesn't make the bike any more desirable and it often confuses owner's of original V7 Specials like me who don't want to know what lambdas and ECUs are. Or is it just grumpy old git?

Yes Phil, you are a grumpy old git, as am I.
I agree though,when looking for parts or info' on the V7 Special it gets quite frustrating to have to trawl through all the stuff which is not relevant to the original masterpiece.

Well, as a loyal MG supporter you should be getting shot of your old stuff and injecting fresh cash into the business by buying new. No wonder companies go bust with customers like you!Big smile

That's the very reason why Guzzi never tried to market to Club members. They were considered pipe smoking bearded old gits. Luddites even.

Guzzi's mistake was to produce superb bomb proof motorcycles which don't need to be replaced after a mere forty odd years. Could be seen of lack of foresight on their behalf, but It keeps me happy.

Agree. It was a big disappointment to me.

Interesting new motor. The forks are a bit like the new Goldwing's but the rake angle is far too long, not to mention being hideous. As yet it is only a concept design but reports are it is well into development.

The tank looks similar  though doesn't it?....

It's  all about company growth and keeping shareholders happy I guess.  
Having recently purchased a Hinckley Bonneville I didn't buy it because it was a Bonneville  , I bought it because it handles  , brakes and doesn't vibrate..  and has carburettors !
Totally off topic I think it's asking a bit much however to expect anyone to buy a new Vauxhall Viva Big smile

Keep smiling , it makes people wonder what you've been up to!

I had a Vauxhall viva,it was ok, also had an Austin Allegro and a Mark 3 Cortina 1300, so you see my motoring credentials are not great  When I had a smash on my T3 Cali in early seventies I bought a Morris Minor,  softened the palm of the cast that was holding my arm together so that I could fit the gear knob into it and have some transport.   as soon as i was healed the T3 was back on the road  Cars have ways been functional for me, never desirable
